Magician gelding out of a Danehill Dancer mare. Sire winner at two, going on to win Irish 2000 guineas and has his first two-year-olds in 2018.
Gelding by Mastercraftsman out of a Brief Truce mare. Half-brother to The Grey Gatsby, Alpha Centauri and recent Nottingham winner Prefontaine. Best watched on debut.
Made a huge step up on debut third in a Leopardstown maiden when fourth to Derby favourite Anthony Van Dyck before finishing 9L adrift of Ten Sovereigns at the Curragh last month. Improvement looks to be on the cards.
Sir Prancealot colt, cost €20,000 as a foal. Half-brother to a winner. Dam a winner and half-sister to a winner over 7f. Nothing of note in three dismal starts to date.
Couldn't quite get involved when fourth of eight on debut over 1m at Leopardstown before disappointing at Naas earlier this month. Drops in trip here.
Casamento colt out of a mare who won five times over middle-distances. Well out the back on debut at Naas last month and plenty to prove here.
March foal by Rip Van Winkle out of a Gone West mare. Half-brother to Dick Whittington, Higher Power and recent Musselburgh winner Restive. Market likely to reveal expectations on debut.
Excelebration gelding, half-brother to a winner over this trip. Well held in two career starts to date and easily dismissed here.
Showed ability when second to Christmas in a Roscommon maiden last month before a promising fourth of 11 in a stronger race at Leopardstown in August. Second on latest start and it appears to be a matter of time before he hits the winning note.
Colt by Slade Power out of a Diktat mare. €29,000 foal went on to fetch 80,000 guineas a year later. Worth a market check.
May foal by Libranno out of a Mark Of Esteem mare. Sire tough and precocious type and later Group winner. Market to be informative.
€130,000 yearling by Exceed And Excel out of a Galileo mare. Yard without a winners from nine with their juveniles this term and caution advised here.
Excelebration colt that cost €22,000 as a foal and went unsold at €30,000 as a yearling. Well back on debut in a Listowel maiden last month and may need more time here.
Vocalised colt, dam a half-sister to Group 2 winner Turret Rocks and another Group 3 winner. Flattered to deceive in four career starts to date and liable to find one or two more talented here.
Improving with each start including a third in Listed class in August but was last of seven in a Group 1 Curragh contest last month. Interesting back in this grade.
Slade Power half-sister to six winners at a variety of trips. Slowly away when well beaten at the Curragh on debut before a 12L defeat at Naas last month. Others preferred.
